When we first heard news that Whole Foods was opening a lower-cost store in Cedar Park with a focus on convenient, ready-to-go foods, we were immediately curious and eagerly anticipating this new arrival. Now the wait is over! 365 by Whole Foods Market is open. Read all about it below.

365 by Whole Foods Market (located at 5001 183A Toll Rd.) is the first of its kind in Texas and only the 4th in the nation. It offers a wide selection of Whole Food’s signature 365 brand goods, grab-and-go meals, affordable fresh produce, wine, bulk foods, and a big selection of body care products. This Cedar Park store is also packed with local love. It includes an Easy Tiger and JuiceLand within the store!

This new Easy Tiger location is perfect for North Austin residents wanting to try their pretzels, craft beers, sausages, sandwiches, pastries, and fresh coffee — all the same as in the original downtown location. It’s a great spot to meet friends for a drink, with outdoor seating available, too.

You’ll also find JuiceLand within the store, serving up their menu of juices, smoothies, and snacks.

We were delighted when Whole Foods invited us in for a tour. Read on to see what else you can expect at this new market.

— Savings: New Rewards Program
Unlike other Whole Foods Markets, this store has a shopping Rewards Program that can really help keep costs down. When you first sign up for the 365 loyalty program, you’ll get $5 off $25 and 10% off on select products across the store. It also works like a digital punch buddy card where if you buy 5 designated items, you get one free. Check out all the details of this rewards program here. To sign up, just go online here or text 365-65.

— Tacqueria: What Austinite doesn’t love fresh tacos? In the back of the store, you’ll find a little taqueria serving up made-to-order tacos, burritos, bowls and tortas with fast service.

— Digital Wine Advisor: Picking the right wine can be a challenge, but you’re in luck here. This store features kiosks in partnership with Delectable wine app to provide recommendations for paring wines with recipes. You can also simply scan a bottle that you’re curious about and pull up ratings and user-generated ratings reviews. This wine department here has more than 400 wines, and take note that the majority of bottles are priced at or below twenty dollars.

— More Unique Finds:

  • Within the store, you’ll find a mochi ice cream freezer!
  • You’ll notice within the meat and seafood section, there’s a nice selection of packaged items already marinated and ready to cook. There’s a big emphasis on ready-to-go foods and time saving convenience throughout this market.
  • On ends of aisles, you’ll find Flash Finds — a selection of seasonal or local new products that are temporarily sold within the store.
  • Also, this store has some fun games and kid-sized picnic tables on the front patio for a little pre- or post-shopping play break with the kids.
